Description of problem:
Not really a bug except in the sense of providing this feature...

In the KDE version of Xscreensaver (maybe Gnome also), the "Web
Collage" is enabled by default. This program grabs pictures from the
internet and displays them as the screensaver. The problem is a lot of
these pictures are inappropriate because they are sexual in content.
Imagine if this happened in an elementary school...

Secondly this program opens a port and uses tcp to search and download
things. This is a bad idea, especially when the user is not told this
up front.

The Web Collage screensaver should be removed or turned off by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Bring up KDE Control Center.
2.Select Appearance & Themes, then Screen Saver
3.Under Banners & Pictures select Web Collage.

Actual Results:  Pictures appeared, many sexual related.

Expected Results:  Since there is no way to filter the images, this
screensaver should not be allowed or enabled. It would be nice if you
could select Random and then disable this one (like in
xscreensaver-demo) but since thet is not allowed, the only alternative
is to either select 1 only or disable it in KDE and run xscreensaver
